Enjoying a good suspense/mystery/romance story is always fun, but when it’s a continuation of a series you feel as though you’re returning to greet old friends and catch up.
The Blackthorne, Inc. Series by author Terry Odell is one such series. I had the pleasure (and honor) of reading the latest in the series, ROOTED IN DANGER, before it’s slated released May 11. Be sure to pre-order your copy today.
ROOTED IN DANGER by Terry Odell
From the first page of ROOTED IN DANGER, I was captivated by the fast-pace story and the fascinating characters.
Author Terry Odell has created an elite team of undercover covert operatives in her Blackthorne, Inc. series. As she focuses on different members of the team, she brings out the characters flaws and their charming qualities making them sexy, macho men with hidden teddy bear traits.
ROOTED IN DANGER highlights the talents and personal side of Foster “Fozzie” Mayhew, an Intel Specialist with Blackthorne. After a tense rescue mission on a tropical island, the cocky Aussie is given a ‘cushy’ assignment before being sent on leave time. Fozzie only has to located the daughter of an extremely wealthy client and tell her she’s wanted at home.
Victoria Hamilton wants nothing to do with her father or the family business. She’s even changed her name. Now Torie Stoker, she’ is determined to follow up on scientific research her best friend, Kathy, was doing before she died after a recent trip to a tropical island.
Just as Fozzie locates Victoria/Torie, he discovers someone else is looking for her too and their intentions are far more deadly. The suspense builds as Fozzie and Torie try to figure out who is after her and why. At the same time, sparks begin to erupt between the unlikely couple.
The story flows quickly with likable, well-developed characters. The tale is a good mixture of mystery and romance with just the right sprinkles of humor and suspense.
This is the 3rd installment in the Blackthorne, Inc. series, but is a stand alone read. However, after meeting Fozzie, you may find you want to know more about the other operatives of this elite group.
